2014 Delta Banks
We love nothing more than to shake things up here at Rendez-vous and this wine is like no other we’ve ever made before! In crafting our Delta Banks, Larry and our tasting room team blended together five varietals from the Clarksburg appellation. The wine opens up like you’re walking through a redwood forest with a bouquet that’s reminiscent of wood, caramelized plum, anise, and dark stone fruit. The first sip brings you some lively spice that dances with mulberry, tart cherry, and rich unsweetened cocoa. The blend finishes with a lasting crisp acidity and some subtly lingering tannins. While it’s delicious now, lay it down for a few years and you’ll be in for a real treat!
